It has been a long spring allowing the flowers to bloom and bloom and bloom. The lilac bushes (and trees) have had a good run but now are almost gone. Periodically though, the vestiges of the lilac aromas (and spring) waft through the air, which is always a nice moment. What this also means is that a pretty rough academic year has finally come to an end and summer is right around the corner. Here’s hoping for some time to write, R&R, and rejuvenation.
